This composition represents two aspects of my experience as a photographer. First it shows my photographic “seeing” of what I feel is a cool composition with a lot of visual interest. Secondly, it’s quite typical of my experience whenever I have my camera and I’m walking with my family. Always in the rear snapping away, followed by a scurried attempt to catch backup. Sound familiar?
In street photography, we don’t wait for golden light. Mid-day will present a different set of circumstances. I love street portraits. I saw this girl on a NYC bench and she caught my attention. She smiles with her eyes, the shadow play from her lashes, one of my favorite street portraits.
